With the English Channel to the north, the Iroise Sea to the west and the Atlantic Ocean to the south, Finistère is completely under the influence of the sea.
For millions of years, waves and storms have shaped our jagged coastlines, creating a wild beauty that is softened by the Gulf Stream.
From north to south, the coast has a thousand different faces, including soaring cliffs, flat beaches, sand dunes and stretches of pebbles. The Abers forge their own shapes in the land, peaceful ports are revealed as you round the corner of a creek; and we mustn’t forget the islands, worlds apart, with distinctly different personalities.
From the Pointe de Primel in the north to the Pointe de Trévignon in the south, there are over 1200 kilometres of coastline, including coastal points with unbelievable views and breath-taking panoramas, perfect places to gaze out to sea and watch the magical light playing on the water.
